14. OneSimCard General Service Questions
    • What is the difference between OneSimCard Universal, OneSimCard Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) and OneSimCard Europe & More SIM cards?

      All 3 OneSimCard SIMs work in a very similar manner.  They all use an Estonian Mobile Number as the primary number and offer a Free US or Canada PEN for 30 days. All OneSimCards also offer many  additional features such as Global Concierge, 24/7 Live Technical Support, SIM VOIP and Apps for iPhone and Android.

      The main difference between the 3 SIM cards is that OneSimCard Universal offers Voice and SMS Text Messaging in many more countries as well as lower data rates.  The OneSimCard Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) is recommended to be used in some countries where for it offers coverage while Universal SIM does not.  For some countries like Canada, Cuba, Brazil and a few others, the OneSimCard Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) offers lower calling rates. 

      The OneSimCard Europe & More was specially created for European travelers and offers our best calling rates to the US & Canada from the 40 included countries. Both the Europe and Universal SIM cards offer easy Direct Dialing in 40 and 75 countries respectively, while OneSimCard Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) utilizes callback. Universal SIM offers callback dialing in those 130 countries which are not covered by the Direct Dialing. Callback dialing does not make it more complex for the caller, except for pressing the Talk button on the mobile phone twice instead of once when making a call.

      OneSimCard Universal, Plus, OneSimCard Expedition (formerly Data & Roam) and OneSimCard Europe & More also operate on different networks in many countries.

      You can compare rates for all these SIM cards here.

15. OneSim VoIP
    • Can I used OneSim VoIP over the Internet Data offered by OneSimCard SIM? Will it save me anything?

      In countries where the cost of using mobile Internet Data is below 20 c/MB, the cost of using SIM VoIP over the data is comparable or smaller than the actual calling rate from the country.
      As a rule ot thumb, the SIM VoIP will use 1MB /Min of talk time. So if the cost of Data in the country is 10 c/MB, then 1 minute SIM VoIP call will cost you 12 cent /minute. You need to have a 3G connection in order for SIM VoIP to work this way.
